Shipment date calculations

You can review the information about ship date calculations for "As Soon As Possible" (ASAP) orders, and for future orders.

ASAP orders are orders that do not have any requested ship or delivery dates specified. These orders could be shipped any time possible. Also, all orders that have a requested ship date or requested delivery date occurring in the past are considered as ASAP orders and treated in this same manner.

Future orders are defined as orders that have at least one of either the requested ship or delivery date defined and the specified date(s) occur in the future.

To arrive at the exact ship and delivery date, system initially calculates a range of ship and delivery dates for the order line. System then refines the range to an exact date based on various locations it is sourcing the product from.
